Former Electoral Commission (EC) chairperson Eng Badru Kiggundu, 74, has dismissed claims that he passed on today Sunday.
”I am very okay,” said Kiggundu when contacted by ChimpReports today evening.
”I have already dispelled those rumours,” he added.
Word that Kiggundu was dead went viral on social media this evening.
Kiggundu, an engineer, academic and consultant, serves as the chairman of the presidential select committee responsible for the supervision of the successful completion of both Isimba Hydroelectric Power Station and Karuma Hydroelectric Power Station.
He was appointed to that position by Museveni, the president of Uganda in August 2016.
Kiggundu expressed shock that people were spreading fake news about his life.
“I don’t know who is behind this,” he said, “Tell everyone that I am okay.”
Cases of prominent Ugandans be declared dead while still alive have grown in recent years.
